A loan of $700 helped buy more merchandise.


Maria's story

María is 46 years old and lives in her own house with her two children: Cynthia (22) and Cristóbal (14). Even though she is separated from her husband, her daughter helps her with the household expenses.

She has been selling clothes for 10 years and she likes the job because she can do it whenever she has free time; it is relaxed work and she sells to acquaintances and friends that place orders and pay on credit. She makes good profits that help her support the household, and with the pension from her ex-husband and the help from her daughter, she does really well. She is also very charismatic and it is easy for her to sell and interact with people. In the future, she plans to setup a clothing store, in association with her daughter; she even has a location in mind, in a shopping center close to where she lives.

This is the third loan she has with MFP and is very grateful with all the people that make her loan possible, since she will be able to get ahead and fulfill her dreams. María plans to invest the money from the loan in buying a bigger quantity of clothes to fulfill her open orders.
